HARGEISA—The International Community has given the duty of bringing and end the animosity between Puntland and Somaliland to Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD).
The IC has said that the Ethiopia must bring a lasting solution to the war that is raging between the Puntland and Somaliland. Ethiopia which shares borders with both sides is said to be an active mediation role to the long standing war that has been raging between the two authorities. Government officials from Somaliland are supposed to travel to Ethiopia for talks aimed at ending the hostilities.
Somaliland called on the int’l community to put pressure on Puntland authority which is fueling the war in Tuka Raq. The IC is doing all it can to end the war while Puntland authority is inciting the war. Puntland’s Vice President, Amay has said that his authority will wage a war where Somaliland will be heavily defeated. On the other hand, Puntland authority has cried foul over a one million dollar donation that the Somalia Federal Govt has pledged to Somaliland on its relief project in the aftermath of Sagar cyclone which hit hard to coastal regions in Somaliland particularly in the west. Puntland said that the SFG has sides with Somaliland over the aid it earmarked for humanitarian relief.
